As a successful financial advisor to high-net-worth families in the late 1990's, Edmond Walters was on the hunt for a practice management and productivity tool that would update client accounts more efficiently and revise their financial plans more judiciously. But having spent his career working to become a trusted and resourceful advocate for his clients, he also looked for a software solution that would improve their experience as well.
But it didn't exist. In 2000, Edmond founded eMoney Advisor.
Born of Edmond's obsession to meet his clients' spoken and unspoken needs, eMoney was designed for dual masters: Both the advisors looking for an edge, as well as the clients they serve. From its inception, eMoney was relentless in its pursuit to develop the leading wealth management experience offering a solution that not only strengthens the advisor/client relationship but also enables financial advisors to lead the lifestyle—and leave the legacy—they envision.
Today, eMoney aggregates more than $1.7 trillion dollars in assets for more than 30,000 financial professionals across three countries and in all fifty states, serving a million end-clients. In a manner unparalleled by any other system, eMoney has helped advisors increase assets under management, identify product opportunities, and win their clients' confidence and loyalty.
Though we're driven to lead through innovation, the defining principle of eMoney's existence will always remain the same: An unwavering dedication to helping advisors and their clients achieve success.

I have been working at eMoney Advisor full-time (More than a year)
I'm a member of the Data Services team.
I started here pretty fresh out of college with an interest in web technologies but no real context to go off of. My degree in CS focused a lot more on straight code and theory as opposed to exposure to different technologies. It made this job a perfect fit since the focus is on building sound object oriented code that interfaces directly with a multitude of different websites.
Due to how quality focused this team is, its been a good growth experience for me. I've been able to really fill in the gaps from my degree and learn about what makes code more maintainable and extendable vs simply being efficient and correct.
Anyone looking to start their career should give this job a hard look. Even if its not a path you want to pursue long term, this job is good for refining your skills and building confidence in your abilities.
We had a rocky transition from our startup phase to being more corporate. Its been a compromise all around.
Advice to Management
Listen to your engineers, even if their suggestions don't align with the business focus their concerns are always around delivering the highest quality of work.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at eMoney Advisor.
I got. call out of the blue from a recruiter apologizing for being late for our call. I explained I never got an interview request, but then found an email in my spam folder. Since she was late, we rescheduled for later that day - That call did not happen. 3 hours later I got a call asking if we could reschedule for the next day. I agreed and scheduled a call for 10 a.m. I got a call from the recruiter at 10:25 am. apologizing again,. She said she was in her car and there was no way she could take notes. We chatted for less than 10 minutes. She complained about being so busy and about another recruiter being out sick, but we never really discussed the job or my background. We discussed salary and at that point she dismissed me. I had to follow up a month later to find out the status of my phone screen and received an immediate reply rejecting my application. Awful experience. Just awful... I'm embarrassed to be in the same industry as this person.
